This winter I made a couple more everyday shirts, both in a pale green linen I bought at my local Fabricville several years ago. They're similar but not identical.I have a whole other post about that, but I did a few things differently from my usual shirts for these ones.
|Shoulder reinforcement from the inside.|
I like the way it fits so nicely around the neck gusset.
|Sewing down the shoulder reinforcement, |
which I had basted first.
|Front slit reinforcement, also basted first.|
|The sample I did for the decorative stitching.|
Dorset wheel buttons too.
|Front slit reinforcement, backlit.|
|Front slit reinforcement as seen from the outside.|
|Shoulder as seen from the inside.|
|Hem gussets at the bottom of the side seams.|
|Front slit reinforcement as seen from the inside.|
|Cuff slit. I did a little bar tack at the end.|
brown cotton trousers, and my brown wool waistcoat. I also really like how the decorated one looks with this dark red cravat.
